. obviously that message will play better to romney there than to obama. but nevertheless, to back out for a second a look at the economy, generally speaking, you have states important swing states where the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. but the recent set of data we see a brightening of consumer attitudes. we see consumer sentiment and surprisingly at a five-year high despite historically high gas prices. despite a lot of the concerns that this is our expressing. we've seen really weak investment and orders in particular. so whether consumer sentiment will continue to hold up and importantly whether that will actually suggest that voters are in a better mood than even the economic figures suggest, could give obama some more support than you might otherwise see and what's relatively weak period of growth. >> whoever it is elected in november is going to be looking at a real takeoff of the economy. all this money that'scying on the sidelines is put to work -- that's sitting on the sidelines is put to work. the u.s. is attractive compared to others around the worl
't know whether it's chicken or egg but people who like obama like the future. >> the unemployment rate is expected to hold stead yes but don't be surprised it ticks up. a big move down the previous month and it has been erat he can but one thing we have consistently seen it comes to jump in one direction and backtrack. whether up or down. if we see it increase even if the payroll figures are ok expect that obviously to be the big story. chris: the question is how will this affect women? once again, this is a big point. 9% of the vote is working women and they decide late. this is one of the weirdnesses about electoral politics. women vote at the last minute. >> you talk to campaign strategists and democratic strategists and say the one group of people we don't understand are women. perhaps that doesn't surprise most of the men. but they do say that women decide erratically and they decide very carefully. and analyze everything. they're much less gut voters than men are. look at the group of women that are particularly affected. it's the white, working class women. they are unemployed a
're governor of ohio. michigan has had one of the biggest drops in unemployment. when obama took office, michigan was a mess because of the auto industry. they've had a huge drop of unemployment. even though they a little bit higher now than michigan. and i was struck that governor kasich suggested that everybody was for the auto rescue. no, they weren't. most republicans, with the exception by the way of president george w. bush who let it happen with actions he took, were against the auto rescue. so i don't understand, well i do understand, but people just don't want to take responsibility for where they stood on that issue. >> this was a question, carly about the auto bailout b. what role government direct government money would play in restructuring these companies. >> that's right. and who stands first in line to be repaid? is it the unions? or is it debtors and creditors? that was the fundamental question. and the truth is, it is disingenuous and factually inaccurate to say that republicans weren't for the rescue of the auto industry. the question was how. and what. and who would
obama will carry colorado. >>chris: now, the economy, which everyone agrees is the number one concern for voters, senator johnson, in wisconsin, let me put up some numbers. the unemployment rate is now nationally down to 7.8 percent and g.d.p. growth in the third quarter rose from 1.3 percent in the second quarter to 2.0 but, still, it is a weak recovery, but, are the president's policies starting to turn things around? >>guest: no, we have had a meager recovery, and it has been tepid and all you can say as far as the g.d.p., it is less bad news. after the wisconsin debate, wisconsin saw governor romney is a man of integrity and intelligence, a man with a plan, unlike president obama who has no proposals to save social security or medicare or unlike the democrats in the senate who have not pass add budget in three years. people want real leadership. that is what they see in governor romney and paul ryan, someone with the courage to put forward real proposals. >>chris: now, the economic recovery, even though unemployment is down to 7.8 percent, no president has been re-elected with une
by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by the national medicination of independent businesses, with a 700,000 job loss which we cannot afford. governor romney has suggested a tax reform proposal that lowers the rate of taxation but makes the tax code more efficient and simplifies it resulting in seven million new jobs the next 10 years. that is the choice. in ohio, they are choosing mitt romney and that is where the enthusiasm is. >>chris: one of you talked about the issue of women and the two campaigns have been battling for months overwhelm and the polls seem to indicate that, in fact, romney has succeeded to at least some degree depending on the poll in closing the scene december gap for women preferring obama over him. this week, i
worked with a democratic legislation la sure. you look at romney's record, it looks obama's presidency pretty thin. the longest period of high unemployment in america history since the great depression. every person who buys gasoline today is paying $2 a gallon more because of obama's energy policies. i think obama if he would have a chance would love to have romney's record in massachusetts. >> the price of gas is going down in these final weeks. >> sure, it goes down every fall. it's still the most expensive this time of year in america. $2 more when obama became president. we're learning more about how much bankruptcies there in solar power. that's pretty tough record to go into ohio, florida, anywhere, and say to folks, why don't you keep voting $2 for gasoline. >> finally, mr. speaker, you heard stephanie bring up the issue of richard m x ourdock in indiana, saying that it's wrong for romney to stand up for him. >> if you listen to what mourdock said, life begins at conception. this seems to be fixated by the democrats. obama is a state senator voted three times in allowing doctor
by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot here in ohio and that will result according to a study by the national federation of independent businesses with a 700,000 job loss which we cannot afford. so, governor romney instead has proposed pro-growth policies including a tax reform proposal that lowers the rate of taxation, but makes the tax code far more efficient, simplifies it and, that will result in 7 million new jobs, over the next ten years. that is the choice people have and in ohio, you know, they are choosing mitt romney, and that is where the enthusiasm is. >> chris: gentlemen i want to move on and one of you talked about the issue of women, and, the two campaigns have been battling for months, over women, and the polls seem to indicate that in fact romney has succeeded to at least some degree, depending on th
electoral votes. obama won by 10 percentage points. unemployment is mirroring what we have nationwide, 8.2%. neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with their 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes ohio more of a battleground than pennsylvania at the moment? guest: the essential differences ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to either vote republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the recent democrats have done well is because they have captured the suburbs in our state in the recent presidential elections which has been the defining difference. in the middle of ohio and columbus, that is a battleground. there, obviously with cleveland, but in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and cincinnati and out west be more republican. ohio just has a larger pool of these swing voters, if you will, and are more evenly balanced between the democratic and republican regions of the state. pennsylvania has a huge portion of moderate independent-minded voters and they
at fading obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. gerri: doesn't that crystallize the problem for young voters? >> sure when y have 15 percent unemployment in you have 50 percent of them who cannot find jobs once they graduate. staying on the counter. the problem is, though, you still have the recent poll, a harvard poll has obama leading men romney by 90 percentage ints in that age demographic and 18-29. these are your classic case obama's zombies. barack obama, is campaigning in his actual policies are going to ma it a lot harder for young people to find jobs and pay up this enormous debt and is sitting on our doorstep. yet therwill still cast a vote by and large for barack obama in today's. gerri: you look at the way he campaigns. here is money for you, money for you, student loans, free birth control demand for you, i'm going to give you, you know -- >> foods stamps or immigration documents. >> had is that sense to you. >> i think it sounds awful. i personally would not be sucked into voting for him just because of that. i think the point is
. and then he goes after him and says the unemployment number which helped the president a week or so ago -- may not help him this week. let's watch. earlier this week, by the way, "the post" criticized the obama administration's handling of the attack on benghazi. sarah palin headlines her column, "obama's shuck and jive ends with benghazi lives." trump offered money if the president would turn over college records and passport applications. a few weeks ago after employment dropped below 8%, trump claimed it was a result of white house manipulation. let's catch his wording though. >> do you think they changed the numbers? >> i do. i do. and i think that they did -- there was a lot of monkey business. >> sucking up to him is really sickening. why do they treat trump -- sure, talk to him about housing development, talk to him about downtown development. he's a genius. don't ask him his political views because he gets back into monkey business and he's from kenya. >> my overarching point is these guys, not saying they're sophisticated, i think this is crass, but what they've managed to do is take
the '90s, unemployment has fallen to hit lowest level since i took office. home sales are rising, asemi lines are humming again. >> that as president obama in iowa, touting an economic turn-around he was saying that was just getting started. the economy is growing at a sluggish 2% and weak corporate earnings leading to one of the biggest dow selloffs of the year, we're back with dan henninger, and dan freeman, and mary anastasia o'grady. >> steve, happy days are here again? >> yeah. hardly. the problem with the speech that president barack obama showed is nobody really believes that, paul, and these new numbers on gdp show that this is an economy that is still suffering from what i call chronic fatigue syndrome. just isn't picking up the way normal recovery would. and what we're seeing in the gdp numbers, we're also seeing it in the jobs numbers. this is a recovery, if we can use that word, that's about half the pace of a normal recovery, and that's the reason you still have four million fewer workers today with jobs than you did in 2007. this is a really lousy recovery. >> but, mary, w
observers spent a fair amount of time why barack obama is outperforming his national numbers in ohio, among white men. the ohio economy is outperforming the national economy. ohio has a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, it's seen a faster rate of improvement. a big reason for that is, of course, the auto rescue initiated under the bush administration and executed under the barack obama team. an estimated 160,000 of them wouldn't have jobs if the government wouldn't have stepped in with loans. the reason that it comprised one-half of joe biden's two-line campaign slogan for election and why romney tried to race away from the position at the time he held at the time of the crisis, to let the auto industry go through a free fall bankruptcy. now, i supported the auto rescue at the time. i think it's been well handled by the obama administration. there's something more bizarre that after the first term, the president ended the war in iraq, passed landmark reform and a health care bill that is the most significant piece in year, a bill that gives each american access to health ins
. >> alisyn: that's kind of scary. the latest gdp report shows only 2% growth and with the unemployment rate at 7.8%, is this the economic recovery that president obama had promised? we're back now with our political panel to take a closer look at some of the numbers. 2.0% gdp growth and better than expected. >> it's very poor. over the last 115 year the average has been 3.25% and low in comparison and don't be bamboozled by the number. in fact, it was fueled by enormous federal government spending. the president is literally shovelling the money out of the white house. private sector growth was 1.3%, a minuscule 1.3%, and the money that the federal government spent, some of it was defense, but a lot of it went for very preposterous wasteful things like community transformation grants, to organizations in south l.a. that do one-on-one street education, or 1.3 billion dollars to insurance co-opes that have a 35 to 40% expected default rate. >> alisyn: got it. >> so this is wasteful money to create new jobs before the election. >> alisyn: is this the kind of growth we're looking for, brian. >>
